Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-225: One the Street: Gasoline in Utopia

I just filled my tank with gas and paid $2.79 a gallon.  That may be no big deal to you but I am from California and had barely crossed the border into Nevada.  The station near my home in the People’s Republic was offering to share gas with me at $4.09.  The last stations we saw before we left the Golden State were asking $4.89.

It is amazing what happens to the price of things when the government tries to control things.  You can’t blame the greedy oil companies.  It is the same companies in both states.  The difference is the government.  In California, where the progressive environmentalist rule, they will not let anyone build a new refinery and require very expensive additives to the gasoline.  They had one a few years ago that required a warning label on the gas pumps that the additive could cause cancer.  And it was required.

We may run out of gas before we run out of water.  We will never run out of fools trying to control our lives.
